Ellie Cavanaugh was only seven years old when her fifteen-year-old sister, Andrea, was murdered near their home in a rural village in New York's Westchester County. There were three suspects: Rob Westerfield, nineteen-year-old scion of a wealthy, prominent family whom Andrea has been secretly dating; Paul Stroebel, a sixteen-uear-old schoolmate, who had a crush on Andrea, and Will Nebels, a local handyman in his 40s.

It was Ellie who had led her parents to a hideout in which Andrea's body was found -- a secret hideaway where she met her friends. And it was Ellie who was blamed by her parents for her sister's death for not telling them about this place the night Andrea was missing. Ellie's testimony eventually led to the conviciton of the man she was convinced was the killer. Steadfastly denying his guilt, he spent the next twenty-two years in prison.

When he comes up for parole, Ellie, now an investigative reporter for an Atlanta newspaper, protests his release. Nonetheless, the convicted killer is set free and returns to Oldham. Determined to thwart his attempts to whitewash his reputation, Ellie also returns to Oldham, intent on creating a Website and writing a book that will conclusively prove his guilt. As she delves deeper into her research, she uncovers horrifying and unknown facts that shed new light on her sister's murder. With each discovery, she comes closer to a confrontation with a desperate killer.

    This is the only MHC book I've read so far and I hope it isn't indicative of her other books but this was terrible, a complete waste of time.

  • Marci Calloway

    Very good book. I enjoyed the story from beginning to end. Sad, warm and supspensefull.

  • Lynn Smoak

    I loved this book. It was interesting right from the beginning. I especially loved the ending. There was complete and good closure (unlike so many books). I think Mary Higgins Clark is an excellent author.

    I love Mary Higgins Clark and her books. They are good, suspense, clean mystrys without all the graphic gore some writers feel they have to include. Daddy's Little Girl lived up to my expectations as another wonderful suspense/Mystry by Mary Higgins Clark. Daddy's Little Girl kept me on the edge of my seat, waiting to find out what next. You'll love reading and/or listening to it. I think I have read or listened to almost all of her books and if there is one I've missed, I hope to find it soon.

    Very entertaining and well worth listening to. THis was my first Mary Higgins Clark and will listen to her more.

  • Sabrina Lightfoot

    This was a nice and easy listen. I found the story line very believable and I often thought the twist would take me to a different ending. It was definitely one I would recommend highly.

  • Patricia Foster

    Daddy's Little Girl by Mary Higgins Clark was an excellent listen. It kept me on my toes and wanting to know what happened next. Very enjoyable.

  • NY'er in Exile

    My first Mary Higgins Clark. Overall a good book with well developed characters and an interesting storyline. Well read and an easy listen. I have two negative comments: most of what happens is predictable - few surprises; and, the ending seemed to be rushed. More time should have been devoted to wrapping up all the loose ends rather than doing it so quickly.
